Bangs Canyon Outing

Old Tree on Clark's Bench above Bangs Canyon

This gnarly old tree trunk posed beautifully, didn’t it?

On Sunday, I got a spur-of-the moment invitation from @cllecr to hike Clark’s Bench above Bangs Canyon. Luckily she and her husband waited for me. I took out from the house without my purse (with driver’s license) and like I knew where I was going. It took me several tries in the wrong direction to find Little Park Road.

How many years have I lived here?!

It was mostly only overcast as we headed out, but darker storm clouds moved in from the south as we neared the top. The accompanying wind was cold and biting. In the distance, snow fell on the Grand Mesa. Still, it was great to be outside and with interesting people for a few hours.

On our way out, of course it cleared off! Isn’t that always the way?

Happy Monday!
